Send Motor Data from ACS355 to PC
I have a motor connected to an ACS355 and I want to read the RPM and the current of the torque sensor, which is connected to the ACS355 through the I/O Pins 1-3, over time. I have found the program DriveWindow Light 2 for that cause.
Here is my question: What would be the best option to connect the ACS355 to the PC and read the data? I have a FMBA-01 Modbus adapter but I am not sure on how to connect it to the PC - and if it even would be possible to do that.
I appreciate any help, thank you very much in advance! I am also happy to answer any further questions
The Drive Window Lite program allows you to more easily access, from your PC, all the drive parameters, to backup and restore, to monitor live - with the limits of the RS232 connection - the actual values of your motor.
For a connection with the FMBA-01 interface, the Drive Window Lite program is only used to configure the parameters that you want to transmit via ModBus.
Usually it is a PLC that acquires these signals, but it can also be a PC with adequate interface and dedicated SW.
Not knowing which tool you will use for this purpose, I suggest that you read the manuals of the device you will use well, or if it can be of help, for an initial analysis - albeit very brief - of how to configure a ModBus connection from one drive to another device, you can rate my app at the following link:
Hope this help you
